reviewed The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956 film). March 02, 2012
I like Hitchcock’s The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) the same way I like To Catch a Thief. Both are big, fat, slick and satisfying entertainments made by a professional at the top of his game, with …

Rear Window
I always found it quite ironic that a man in a wheel chair would foil the plans of the man that would later go on to become famous for playing Ironside, a man in a wheel chair.

A great performance by James Stewart and an interesting look at how Hitchcock's techniques developed with the use of the camera and transitions.

As a rabid anglophile and all-around film buff, Frenzy ticks all the right boxes. Hitchcock is in fine form, laying the suspense on thick and showing London in its post "swinging" hangover.    The …
